Hypermobile Lip Plastic Surgery
A gummy smile with a hypermobile lip can make an individual very self conscious about smiling. When the teeth are of normal size and the gum tissue display is more than wanted, a skeletal discrepancy is usually involved. Under the right circumstances, a minimally invasive lip lowering plastic surgery can achieve dramatic results. This procedure shortens the fold between the lip and the gums to reduce the amount of lip travel. An alternative treatment is complex orthognathic jaw surgery that frees and repositions the upper jaw. This method is used only in the most extreme cases due to high cost and extended recovery.
Hypermobile lip plastic surgery is a minimally invasive and cost effective way of improving a gummy smile when the teeth are of normal size.
